Middletown, R.I.-based KVH Industries is working with Russian shipping company Unicom to equip its fleet with KVH's TracVision M9 satellite TV antennas.

A total of 60 antennas will be installed over the duration of the project, representing the largest single maritime TracVision order in KVH history.

"We are excited that the TracVision M9 is proving itself as a valuable part of the crew recruitment and retention strategy for a large, respected company like Unicom," said Svend Lykke Larsen, director of sales for KVH Europe A/S, in a statement. "This project is an important example of our comprehensive suite of products that connect commercial operators and crew around the globe to satellite TV entertainment and broadband communications."

KVH Industries Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, KVH Europe A/S, are leading providers of in-motion satellite TV and communications systems.
